a pack each of D'Artagnan vacuum packed rabbit and/or venison sausages bought in Jan 2018, with an eat by date of Mar 2018?

I think I am unless someone sensible advises strongly against it. They look ok in the pack. :?:

Personally. No. I just don't see it being worth the risk. A few days, even weeks out of date - OK - but 10 weeks is pushing your luck.

But let me know how you get on ;)

Have they been in the freezer, or just the fridge?

"Best before..." = yes

"Use/consume by..." = no

Vacuam packed and kept somewhere cool, no problem.

Open the packs and smell.

If they smell off, then definitely not. Having said that, even if they smell OK, you can still get food poisoning from them

Good luck, and if this is your last post, we'll know it turned out not to be such a good idea.

The fridge and its teh use by date in March. Hmmm. Maybe cook some and have a nibble and wait an hour. Smell test first.

Why would you risk it for the sake of a couple of bucks.

I wouldn't go near it. All sorts of bacteria and the like could have developed in there, even chilled and vacuum packed, and not all will offer any evidence like smell.

I think the more important question is how the fudge did such tasty sounding fair spend months in the back of your fridge uneaten?

I f**king despair at humanity at times!!

Don't think I'd have taken the risk with a meat product, and I tend to think of myself as pretty forgiving in those sort of circumstances. If was going to try them, it'd be after boiling/cooking the life out of it for an hour or so, so probably not worth eating anyway.

Wise choice. You wouldn't have enjoyed them anyway. Not with the thought of food poisoning surfacing with every mouthful.

It was a buy one get one free deal adn I think I bought 6 or 8 packs. After ploughing through the for about 2 weeks consistently, I had enough and there they remained.

Anyway, found some much 'fresher' (May) chorizo sausages and had them mushed up with onion and egg and pinto beans and con queso in some tacos. Still alive.
